Rycote 065504 Overview

  • 1Description

The Rycote Undercover pads are a disposable mount and windshield used for mounting lavalier microphones underneath clothing. There are ten black, ten grey and ten white pads (30 total) supplied in each package. The pads are double coated with a peel-off adhesive and a soft-woven material. The adhesive is peeled onto clothing, providing a tacky mounting surface for lavalier microphones. The woven fabric disc is placed over the microphone and adhesive surface, sandwiching the microphone, and eliminating structure and rustling noise caused by movement of clothing, cables, etc.

Rycote 065504 Reviews

Undercover - Lavalier Wind Cover is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected My Audio Techs have been using these for years and I finally ordered some for myself. I would always forget to toss these in when ordering from BH, but I finally remembered. They work fantastic with professional lav's (Tram, Countryman B6 and B3) With a larger mic like the popular Sennheiser ME4 you will have issues, but to be honest that specific mic is not very friendly when it comes to trying to hide it. The Sennheiser ME2 will work just fine though with the wind cap and clip removed. I think it's a must have for hiding mic's and if you are anything like me, I hate seeing mic's in the shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple yet Effective! I've been using these Undercover tabs to attach lavalier mics for a couple of years, now, and I can truly say that I have yet to fing anything more effective. I HATE having lavalieres attached to ties, clipped to lapels, and otherwise shouting out to the world, Look, I'm a Microphone! I've tried moleskin, making cages from paperclips, all sorts of things to hide the mics and eliminate handling and clothing noise, but nothing seems to work as well as these simple two-sided adhesives and the little cloth covers that come with. Fast, cheap, disposable and convenient, I think undercovers belong in every sound-person's kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Engineer's Best Friend! Let me just say this, I am not a professional Sound Enginner, but with these covers, some people can't tell the difference. I started working on a web series recently and when I came in I was thought of as a pro, yet I have only had a year of experience. These rycote covers completely get rid of the clothes noise when mic'ing moving actors with lavs. They are amazing, simple to use, they are cheap, and completely make a huge difference. I heard about these from audio professional who use them on a constant basis. These covers have changed my career in film making. They are a must get if you have actors that need to be mic'd with lavaliers and are constantly moving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I use these under shirts. The stickies work great. They are very tacky and hold well. The fuzzy part attaches sandwiches the lav and sticks to the sticky. It held all day. I situation is that I still hear movement from the skin/shirt. I've tried it with my Sonotrim lav facing the sticky and facing the soft fuzzy undercover. I had a better situation when I faced the Sonotrim lav towards the sticky and attached the fuzzy VERY loosely. I think these are the best options out there, but I still hate giving my microphone to subjects/talent. I'd rather hold my microphone and be in control of my sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from make your own I shoot documentary film and thought these might save me some time, but it basically just compromised the interviews I used them for. They're very simple and easy enough to just use your own made from moleskin. The adhesive came loose mid-interview on any kind of sweater, and any movement was still audible despite very careful placement. It's still cloth on cloth. to be useful it needs to be bigger so the mic is better enclosed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total fail I bought this with high hopes of being able to conceal a small mic (matchstick mic, about the size of a countryman). After hearing numerous high-profile pros endorse these, I figured I was missing out on something amazing by not using these. I finally bought some, tested with decent results, then took them to the field and gave them a try, another try, a 3rd, and then a fourth try. or should I say fail. The first two times, the mic came out of the sticky and the sticky stayed on. It lasted about 10 minutes both times. The audio I did get had way more clothing noise than I like. The third time I went on the skin to the sternum. It held but the clothing noise and movement noise was unbearable. The fourth time I did direct to skin at the collar bone under a t-shirt. It worked amazingly well, for 25 minutes before detaching in the middle of the production. Sorry but save your money and go the gaff tape route. Watch some of the great youtube tutorials out there to gain some real knowledge on how to get great results with what's already in your kit before being sold on these, they're useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Undercovers are SuperCovers! I'm an Audio Engineer who just discovered Undercovers last month. Before that, I just used a piece of moleskin on the lav for the on camera talent. Undercovers are so much better because they stick better and make less noise due to its size. I havent tried to stick them on the outside of clothing, but the three colors of wind screens is a great idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Mic Been using this mic in conjunction with a Zoom H1 portable recorder. The Sennheiser 3.5mm locking connector works fine with the device. Works great underclothes with very little clothes noise as long as it is mounted correctly. I used Rycoat Undercovers with the mic against the outermost clothing and secured with a Rycoat holding in place. This microphone is tiny and having just one side sound sensitive is absolutely great for reducing clothing and rustling noise. Just make sure you mount it around the right way, otherwise sound will be muffled or non-existent.

What size are these pads? Do they work with a Sennheiser me2 lav?
Asked by: Anonymous
They are the size of your thumb fingernail. They have stick on both sides.I prefer DrScholl's Moleskin Plus Paddidng (UPC14800) 3 strips 4 5/8 x 3 3/8 pads. You may cut them to whatever size you need and stick them over the mike onto the skin. The soft padding top prevents clothing noise. (You can buy them at most drug stores and markets for under $10.)
